The tightrope walker balances over the precipice, risking life and limb as he walks over the thinnest of threads. They are not actors; rather, they relive what is essentially their life away from the wire. We are all tightrope walkers, though some more than others. Whether we are aware of it or not, we are all balanced on the edge. That is what they are trying to tell us.
Their walks are as fleeting as life itself. Life depends on one thin wire and on keeping our load balanced. A writer once said that we shouldn’t use the expression “to be hanging on”. We believe that you cannot look at a tightrope walker without seeing the void under him and his struggle with his load as a confrontation with death. Otherwise, what’s the point of witnessing this kafkian heroe who has chosen to search for beauty in this extreme gesture of desperation and madness?
Every object contains within itself its own archetype, a link to the time and the world to which it belonged. An old school desk can carry us back in time, evoking countless personal recollections while bringing to life the emotions associated with that particular period of our lives. In the same way, what is today the latest model of a cell phone will, with the passage of time, come to remind us of these days and of the world that created and used it. Objects serve to tell the story - and the history - of the people and the society in which they existed.
The vertex, the common point at which two lines converge – or diverge – , is a primordial element in the graphic representation of all kinds of phenomena. It is first and foremost a graphic symbol, one that in its essence is the synthesis of an event. It marks the point where a road separates, where two rivers come together, where one plane ends and another begins, a change of direction, a fold, a dilemma posed by two possibilities, the branching out of growth and evolution, the cross-linking of a plane, the planar deconstruction of a volume, an itinerary for logical reasoning, computational structure, algorhythmic formulation…
Este bosque de maderas es una librería que reúne 51 piezas grabadas con el nombre del árbol de donde proceden. Son ediciones limitadas, ya que proceden de restos de árboles que hemos ido consiguiendo con el tiempo y la ayuda de mucha gente y que nosotros queríamos, seguir dándoles vida. Esto significa que una vez que se termina un resto de madera, utilizaremos otra, haciendo cada serie diferente.
